Editors-in-Chief (2020 - 2022):

Language Learning in Higher Education is one of the many meaningful areas of expertise that the CercleS academic community offers language education practitioners at large. It represents the meeting point where research and teaching experiences in the field of language studies are shared and further developed. Language education, humanistic approaches to language learning, multilingualism, intercultural communication, intercomprehension, academic language competences, creativity in language education are just some of the many topics worth receiving attention. We are honoured to be part of this community and, thanks to our enthusiasm, we will make every effort to foster the collaborative nature of this multifaceted European Confederation and to contribute to the recognition of its expertise
